Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher likes bad reviews

Noel Gallagher likes reading bad reviews of other people's bands.

The High Flying Birds frontman enjoys the British music press when they are at their most brutal, especially when it's not one of his own projects they are writing about.

He told NME magazine: ''I tell you what's nice is reading s**t reviews of other band's records. You read it and go, 'Yes. You f***ers! Let's have a laugh at that.'

''I'm not gonna say who, because they're f***ing friends of mine, but there was a really brutal one a while back, and I was like, 'Yeah, true that.'''

Noel, 45, also particularly enjoys reading what his estranged brother Liam - who hasn't spoken to him personally since an argument in 2009, which caused the end of their band Oasis - has to say about him when he's interviewed in magazines.

He added: ''I still buy NME when Liam's on the front - because I know he'll be s***ging me off. There was a point where [his band] Beady Eye were out, but I wasn't doing anything. Liam was on the cover of NME every few weeks, basically saying, 'Noel's a ****'.

''I'd go into the newspaper shop and my two Asian mates would be reading it under the counter, they'd say, 'You come for this?' and I'd see them whincing.

''Then they'd say, 'It's not a good one. I don't think he likes you very much.'

''I'd reply, 'Yeah. I don't think he likes anyone very much.'''
